A Garand eh? That's a pretty big void to fill. I'm looking at bolt action .410. Scare up rabbits and blast em away.

One time I had a heater go bad, too. It was a pain in the ass to replace, I agree. But all in all, even though they sound like a hassle, for the 99.9% of the time waterbeds are hassle free, they are a dream to sleep on. I would miss my waterbed if I ever had to go back to a regular bed.
When I worked for AutoZone I worked in a store where the ceiling leaked every time it rained. And it conveniently created a waterfall down the back wall right by the battery charges. Good thing it never lit on fire. Batteries release hydrogen when they're charging, which by the way is explosive. Then the batteries were right in front of that, air filters would be next, then the coolant rack, then the oil rack that would have been fun, and next to that were all the chemicals... Brake cleaner, throttle body cleaner, degreasers, all in aerosol cans.... When I called the maintenance guy and told him the leak in the ceiling was going to kill us all, I didn't really think I was being overly dramatic...

I feel that way every day. I tried to get Trip to give me his 1911, he said no.

When the heater went bad it was in the middle of the summer here in Florida. I didn't think it was a big deal as warm as it was. I figured I would get a heater in the next couple days and then install it. The next night around two am I woke up on a frozen bed. Hmm I wonder if it weighed more? LoL. Maybe that is why the pedestal broke?
Maybe it was. I bet it felt heavier.

My waterbed has never actually frozen. (Was it less than 32 degrees Fahrenheit in your house?) But what many don't understand is even in the summer, unless the ambient temperature is in the upper 90's, I have the heater set. I once thought if it's so hot out (say in the high 80's, low 90's) I could turn the heater off and be cool. I woke up around 0200 freezing. It's kind of like swimming in a pool. Even though it's 100 degrees out, once your in the pool for a length of time you eventually get cold and shiver. Water transfers heat faster than air.

Well, that wasn't very kind of him, was it?

I always thought oil wasn't very flammable. But I don't really know.

I wouldn't say oil is all that flammable but it'll sure burn hot
